    What 9mm ammo is considered best self defense load? I checked past threads, but couldn't find any.

    That's because there is no "best". Any of the premium loads by the big-name manufacturers will do the job. Just make sure to buy a few boxes of whatever you choose to test it in your gun. A SD situation is not the time to find out your gun does not like the ammo you are feeding it.

    ll handguns are different. You might know a guy that used one brand and it might be great in his but in yours it might trey to hang up or just not group as well as you think i should. It's best to get a box or so of a few and see what gives the best results. Feeding, grouping are much more important tan what expands best in a bunch of wet newspapers.

    No, it's the one about the Glock 19. Same thread as "What's the ugliest gun?" and "Which slide has the most 90 degree angles?"

    Actually, it's the thread about the CZ P-01.
